An unlikely beef between Carl Froch and John Fury continues to go back and forth, with the former super-middleweight champion now setting out his conditions to step in the ring.
Fury was angered by ‘The Cobra’s criticism of his son Tyson’s resume, and threatened to ‘kick him up the a**e’ when he sees him. Froch said he would do no such thing, prompting Fury senior to offer him a fight ‘in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.’
Froch, who was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame last year, has now responded via his YouTube channel, laughing off the idea of the national stadium but saying that it could end up on a Misfits card for charity.
“The Cobra’s still in outrageous, chiselled shape. If you were stood across the ring from me with 10oz gloves on it wouldn’t last very long. And if you’re talking about kicking me up the a**e and giving me a slap when you see me, that’s a totally different story. That’s a roll around on the cobbles, and trust me you don’t want to go there with me.”
“[Wembley] is not gonna happen John. Misfits are talking about maybe something happening, if that’s got any legs we’ll have to speak to Kalle Sauerland, but if any kind of fight was gonna materialise for me and you, it wouldn’t be for financial gain. I’m sorry to burst your bubble. There’s no money to be had. If this stupidity becomes real because of the Misfits scene … I’d be doing it for charity.”
Froch then set out the conditions that Fury must fight either Joe Egan or Micky Theo on the Misfits platform first before he considers the offer serious.
